........ I shall ask him if this morning's skies were a warning
yesterday I finished piecing the last block of Leanne's House, and brought out the first block from the house, as I had finished the applique and embroidery
or rather, I thought that I had finished - but when I went to take a close-up, I found that I hadn't done the satin stitch on this flower
Malcolm has been doing quality control, and has criticised the stitching of this point!!
there is a great deal of embroidery to do - this is just a small part of one block There is even embroidery round the applique hearts
I was going to make more scrappy strippy blocks, but decided that I would instead get on with the runners I am making with the wonderful Australian fabric that Lee gave me for my birthday. Having stitched some of the blocks together, I then prepared another batch of strips
today I finished stitching this runner
then made this one with crazy blocks from the offcuts
and almost finished a third one. Here they are being tried out in the hall
all this talk of using things up reminded me of an email that I was sent years ago. I liked it so much I printed it out and put it on my notice board (click on it to enlarge it)
that, I hope, will be me!!
